I first posted back in Feb. 2006.
My problem is defectively installed drip edges that allowed water to run off the house between fascia and the drip edge. Which caused the soffits and the fascia to deteriorate. Original contractor refused to honor his warranty. Second contractor: charged $400 to remove and reinstall bottom row of shingles and extend them 1 inch past the roof’s edge. This did not work!
Third, very reputable contractor. Installed felt between bottom row of shingles. Did not do a tear-off. I told him that there were still a few areas of water running down fascia. He said that it would stop once the glue/caulk material used settled. Now there is mold on the fascia.
What is the proper procedure? Somebody please. This is driving me batty, not to mention the cost. Should I request that the entire drip edge material be totally re-done and replace the bottom row of shingles? Could it be a defect in the type of drip edge used?
I am also concerned because since contractor #2 extended the shingles, there are large moisture spots on the ground every morning which is causing the concrete to stain.
